Feb 22, 2008Feb 23, 2008

February 22nd-23rd
Baltimore, Maryland

As our longest-running program, the Mercatus Center’s annual Chief of Staff Retreat is the leading bi-partisan, off-the-Hill gathering for senior congressional staff. For over ten years, the Retreat has offered participants a chance to explore pioneering economic ideas, focus on key legislative matters, and interact across party lines in a comfortable and educational setting away from Capitol Hill.

With discussions ranging from general economic concepts to more specific policy concerns, the Retreat is the perfect way for staff to step back from the world of politics, enhance their policy knowledge, and consult with a wide assortment of academics and practitioners. Since its inception in 1994, the Retreat has become the most widely attended professional development event for senior Hill staff.
